As always very great service and great food. The only 'drawback' is they are a little expensive - but you know what they say, you get what you pay for.

Been going to Real Seafood since they opened many years ago. Food is and has always been good. Great place for a variety of seafood. Service was excellent. Noise level was low when we went, but it was not a busy time as it was the week before all the students and their families arrive.

Have been there many times and the food is usually very good. This time the server was less than average, slow and forgot to ask about items and forget them too. Not their best day

I would recommend Real Seafood Company for anyone looking for a great seafood dinner while in Ann Arbor. We've been coming here several times a year for quite a while and we weren't disappointed at all! Our dinners were perfectly cooked and delicious, and came out quite quickly even on a night when the restaurant was busy. The wait staff is always awesome, as was our waiter for this meal.

Dinner was excellent. We were able to take advantage of their birthday deal, so that was nice!

The food was very good as was the service; however, the pricey Bloody Mary with the crab and shrimp was different and did not taste particularly good. My husband always looks forward to this drink when we dine here but said that he would not order it again.

Nice to sit outside on the patio. We enjoyed having a birthday meal here. Strange that a key ingredient, cherries, was missing from our order.

The staff was great. We had reservations to eat outside but the weather turned crappy. The hostess was terrific and very accommodating.
Our waiter Shawn was the best. This was our first time and he was terrific. Fish was good, paella was OK at best. Will go back.

The food and service were excpetional. The noise was quite unpleasant. It was impossible to carry on a coversation with the people at our table. We were a party of six and could only speak to the person next to us without shouting. You could not hear the person across the table whatsoever. It made for a difficult celebration.

We have dined here many times over the years. Food is not what it used to be. Bland. Overpriced for the quality and taste. Wine was over priced as well. Sad that this used to be one of our favorite places. We won’t be back.

We’ve been patrons for years, but were sorely disappointed in some of the food. The Brussels sprouts were impossible to cut with a table knife. I never send food back, but I sent these back. They returned hotter but no more tender. The redskins were dried up and hard. The sweet potatoes were also undercooked—al dente is not a good quality in a roasted sweet potato. I don’t know if we’ll return. The service was good, though.

The food was respectable but nothing special by any means. The service was impeccable and extremely friendly. Overall for the cost, there is far more value for the $ at other establishments.

We were easily able to eat at 6 PM and easily get to a performance at the ARK by 8 PM.
There was a large selection from the menu from which to choose.
Salad was delicious and filling!

There was very little (if any) oyster meat in the Oyster Rock. The Clam Chowder was very thin and tasteless. The Lobster Roll had very little to it. It was more bread than anything. When you order Crab Cakes on the Shareable section, you get only one crab cake. Overall a disappointing experience.

Fish was expensive and a bit dry. The one and only vegetarian main dish didn't have much vegetables. So in the end I was disappointed

We made reservations, the greeter was surprised, unprofessional, so we waited for her to find a table. The server was not engaged, hard to hear and forgot some requests, the food was fine, nothing special. The price was too high, overall below average. We have been there before.

We were just a bit late but had to wait quite a while for a table.

Amazing food. Everything was cooked perfectly. Actually decent prices for what you get compared to other restaurants. Service was meh, but looking at the others i think we had a lacking waiter. We will definitely go back soon for more. This place was wonderful!

Requested a quiet table or booth. Got neither. Place was so noisy our table of 4 couldn’t visit or hear one another. Food and waitstaff was good but overpriced for the venue. I’m in no hurry to return right away.

It was my birthday lunch and I appreciate the indoor/outdoor seating as the noise level allows for easy conversation without shouting. I ordered fish and chips, deep fired cod served with fries and coleslaw on the side. The cod was nicely prepared in a crispy breading. Service very good.

Real Seafood is a dependable, family friendly option for birthday celebrations and just a nice dinner out with the family. We routinely spend birthdays here and have been disappointed only on one occasion when we were placed in the same small space as a very large, very noisey group. In hindsight we should have asked to be moved and I am sure we would have been accommodated.

Dined on a summer Friday night and really enjoyed it. Truly fresh fish prepared so that you can still taste the fish. Servers are attentive and went back to the kitchen to confirm whether cilantro was an ingredient in one of the sauces.

Menus are on an iPad and our server walked us through or I would have missed the Scallop entree. It is a little pricey but with delicious food, good wine list and fabulous desserts we will go back.

Food was mediocre, not terrible, just bland. I was expecting it to be a lot better than Red Lobster but it was on par. Expensive too. Waiter and atmosphere was very nice. The search continues for a decent seafood place.

Get the Swordfish blackened. SO good! Sat in the garage area/in between the restaurant and sidewalk. A gorgeous evening and felt like a mini vacation.

We enjoyed the time (4 of us) immensely. Our waittress was extremely helpful and energetic. We love seafood --- therefore the meal met our rarely satisfied cravings. Wish we could spend less, but, when it comes to seafood, you have to exercise the wallet. We were delighted with our experience. Thanks.
